Art show just around the corner

  • Feb. 4, 2008 9:00 a.m.

Submitted by Sheila Karrow–This year’s All Island Art Show will showcase artworks in a variety of media. Both youth and adult artists are invited to submit recent artwork relating to the theme of inspiration and influence (what inspired you to create this piece?). Artists are asked to deliver their artwork to the HG Museum, Skidegate on Feb. 14 from 10 am to 12 noon or on Feb. 15, from 10 am to 4 pm. Work must be ready for hanging, labelled on the back, and accompanied by a completed entry form with a $10 fee. Artwork submitted after these dates cannot be accepted, as the hanging of the show will begin on the following week. Entry forms are still available at local postal outlets and at the QC library. Come and celebrate our first art opening at the beautiful museum. The opening will be at 7 pm on Friday, Feb. 22. Our adjudicator will be Maria Hupfield, a visiting artist and instructor from the Emily Carr Institute. Ms Hupfield is an Ojibwa artist who concentrates on contemporary art unifying traditional craft, ceremony, performance, and elements of First Nation Art History. She earned her Masters in sculpture at York University and her Honours Arts Degree in Art History and Art at the University of Toronto and Sheridan College. Ms Hupfield will also be leading a workshop on collaborative mural painting on Saturday, Feb. 23 and Sunday, Feb. 24 as well as an artist talk on Sunday, Feb. 24 at 7 pm at the Qay centre. To register for the workshop please call 559-7702 as soon as possible. Registration fees must be received by Feb. 14 at the latest. Howa and great inspirations!
